I have an F-150 with a 300 streight six (300 ci.). Ford made a turbo deisel in a tractor. Now my question is can I use that turbo from the deisel on the 300 streight six? Please contact me as soon as possible. Thank You!

these two obviously thought you wanted to use the whole diesel. the turbocharger on these diesels is not as large as the turbos on truck engines. this would not bring as much power to your straight six as you wanted and probably wouldn't be worth the trouble of rigging it up. if i were you, i would go with a real turbo system made for your truck.

Not unless you want to spend lots of money and create major headaches for yourself. Other than the fact that both engines are straight sixes, nothing else is the same. One of your biggest challenges would be to mate the engine to trans with some sort of adapter (I'm not aware of any), not to mention the fact that you would have probably triple the weight there, because of a cast iron oil pan. I hope this is enough to make you think twice about this idea. One more thing, with a rated speed of 2200 RPM, you would have to come up with an overdrive trans, unless you like driving 40 MPH down the freeway!

If you've got enough money you could probably put the 401 cid engine from a TW35 in it.

Today's Featured Article - Box Plow Blues - by Tom Schwarz. One of the first implements most tractor owners obtain is the box plow. For very little money, this piece of equipment promises to plow and flatten any hill or vale on your ranch road or farm. At least that's what I thought! As simple as a box plow appears, it can be rather challenging to make work correctly. In our sandy soils of Florida, traction is king. You can never have wide enough tires or heavy enough weights to get all the traction you want unless you own a monster tractor. U ... [Read Article]
